Jay McGuiness admitted that US music mogul Scooter Braun helped pull them through a hard time earlier this year after the group parted ways with their former manager Jayne Collins.
"Scooter's done an amazing job and pulled us out of the s**tter," McGuiness told the Daily Star.
"There was some painful stuff to go through, which I can't say too much about. Scooter had been sort of guiding us anyway, but we were heartbroken about what happened."
He added: "I don't want to badmouth anyone, as it's not healthy to sound bitter. You have to realise life isn't all roses and butterflies."
The Wanted will release their new single 'I Found You' on October 29, while their third studio album is due to follow in November.
